"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." ― Benjamin Franklin

Welcome to the Virginia Adult Learning Resource Center's Events page. This section of the website contains all of the Professional Development opportunities currently scheduled.

We are able to only offer services free of charge to those who are employed in programs funded through grants from the Office of Adult Education and Literacy and/or the Virginia Literacy Foundation. If you are interested in taking any of these trainings please contact your Regional Program Manager or Regional Adult Education Specialist. If you are not funded through either of those organizations, please contact us directly at or by phone at 1-800-237-0178 for a fee schedule.
